Help! 2 Boys 16/19 My kids like rap. It drive me nuts. Some of it makes me into a crazy man. Ten minutes is all I can take or I leave the room.
They like all sorts of music. rock,jazz,and classical.When they go to concerts they always put their money on rock.My 16 year old is a great first class drummer. (like his Dad) I have always tried to show them what musicianship is all about. Always regret not taking them to an outdoors GD show.But it was too late.

Your reaction to rap is totally understandable. I try to look at it from a generational point of view - my parents thought that the Stones were the Devil incarnate. And, I try to think of rap not as music, but street poetry. You are lucky in that they also show some wider interest in other types of music as well.
